The Ombre Ring listens to the users environment as warns them when they have been exposed to dangerous levels of sound for extended periods.
This University Project began with an exploration in units. I chose to focus on decibels, dB and time.
Sound levels become dangerous relative to the time you are exposed to them.
The ring provides feedback to the user through the change of colour as the sounds/time combination approaches dangerous levels. When the user is currently damaging their ears the Ombre Ring provides haptic feedback that warns the user to remove themselves from that environment.
